Documentary filmmaker Paul Barber looks up Sir Laurence Dunne, the magistrate who wrote the report of a tube-station shelter disaster in Bethnal Green, London, one night in 1943. Secrets and lies, blame and forgiveness, memory and remembering. You'll see how deceptive these qualities can be, even with the best of intentions. A very good book.

Based on actual events surrounding a crush at an air raid shelter during WW2. A fictionalised account. Alittle stiff but not too bad.
